How far are you willing to go to de-stress? Will you ever try lying on a massage table while snakes slither along your back?
You probably just had a minor panic attack, but that’s true. People actually let snakes massage them to de-stress.
For most people, snakes draw out a sense of panic and this might doesn't look relaxing but at Bali Heritage Reflexology and Spa in Jakarta, these slithering reptiles don’t give people the creeps. Instead, they give a 90-minute deep-tissue massage.
For $43, six-foot pythons with their mouths taped shut can wriggle their way up your spine and across your hands and even face. Massage therapists try to ensure that these creepy-crawlies don’t coil up.
This atypical massage center in Jakarta is not the first place to offer these bizarre snake massages. In the past few years, there have been other masseuses offering snake massages in Israel and Thailand as well.
The owner of Ada Barak’s spa in northern Israel also believes that she has harnessed the relaxing power of these slithering creatures and according to her, physical contact with reptiles create a pleasant vibration.
Now if you ever feel like having a snake massage, you know where they wrap snakes all over your body and face.
